Anthony Marwood combines his love of chamber music with solo performances with orchestras around the world, most recently with the Boston Symphony, St Louis Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and Australian Chamber Orchestra.
He was named Instrumentalist of the Year by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 2006.
Anthony’s current appearances as soloist/director include concerts with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Les Violons du Roy (Quebec), Vancouver Symphony and at the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne. He is also looking forward to concerto performances with the New Zealand Symphony, Iceland Symphony, BBC Symphony, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, London Mozart Players and Orquesta Sinfonica de Galicia, as well as with the ORF Radio Symphony at the Vienna Konzerthaus. Until its final concerts earlier this year, Anthony was violinist of the award-winning Florestan Trio.
In 2012 his recital work with the pianist Aleksandar Madzar takes him to New York (Frick) and Dallas (Nasher), as well as on a substantial tour of Australia. Last season Anthony and Aleksandar’s performances in London of sonatas by Brahms, Schumann and Schubert were recorded for the Wigmore Live label. Anthony is a Hyperion recording artist and this February saw the release of a disc of Britten concertos that received outstanding reviews, was Sunday Times CD of the week and was given an International Record Review ‘Outstanding’ Award. His recording of Schumann concertos will be released this September.
Anthony is co-Artistic Director of the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival in Sussex, England.
